Abstract [en]

In the first part of the paper I give some brief background to the newly introduced “required knowledge” in reading literacy for grade 3 in the Swedish compulsory school. After that I develop a theoretical framework for the discussion concerning the child/student in the public sphere, that is, in the school with its possibilities and its obligations; in this case the obligation is to take part in a national reading and writing test in grade 3 and to reach the required knowledge. In the third part of the paper I examine the basic political assumptions about literacy in general and on early reading literacy, in particular. This examination consists of studies of policy documents from both the international and national education policy arena, based on the hypothesis that the term “literacy” is primarily rooted in the OECD’s policy strategy.  In the fourth and final section, I discuss the implications of the right of the child to reach certain targets and the problems which might arise with taking part in national tests which might just show failures.
